Back Problems board


Hello, everyone. I will tell you all about myself. I am a 29 year old married mother of two beautiful children, ages 6 and 8. I have had reoccurring severe back pain for a little over 7 years now. A year ago, I had my first MRI performed on my lumbar spine only. I have mild Degenerative Disc Disease (which is also in my cervical spine), osteoarthritis, two disc protrusions, annular tears, bone spurs, and hemangiomas (yes more than one) covering my L4 disc. My lumbar problem areas are L4-S1. I also have a heart condition and severe Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (which I see a hand and wrist specialist on Friday for my first appointment). I currently take two heart medications, Neurontin 900 mg daily, Tramadol 200 mg daily, and several "natural" supplements. For the past two months, I have been taking Zoloft 50 mg daily for depression due to the chronic pain. I am looking forward to meeting everyone and getting to know you all better. I truly believe in group support. I will also keep you all updated about my upcoming hand and wrist specialist appointment on Friday. Sincerely, Tam
